Fan: “Play My Song, Pearl Jam and I’ll Shave My Dreads!” Pearl Jam: “Okay”

Playing in Spokane the other night, a fan offered to let someone in the band shave off his dreads if they played “Brain of J,” the song about JFK’s missing brain from the Yield album.  

Not wanting to pass up the chance, Eddie turned into the Barber of Seville. Naturally, there’s video.
